Remembering Guido

When Guido came to this country, he thought that the streets would be paved with gold.  After he arrived, he learned three things.

1)  The streets were not paved with gold.

2)  The streets were not paved.

3)  He was going to have to pave them.

He loved this country and he loved helping to build it.

Posted by visiting blogger Ann-Louise on Guido, her father.


  1. Hi Ann-Louise,
    nice to see you in print.
    what year did your father arrive in America?

  2. @petersonNice to hear from you, James. Guido was 14 when he arrived in the United States from Italy in 1924.
